Have you ever been recognized for your fishing knowledge or catching luck? Do have pics? Just wandering. There are a lot of knowledgable people here. If not at least there is always crappie.com. Thanks fellow pomoxis regulators.:cool:

I have been in Outdoor Arkansas three times. It is a local publication through the weekly newspaper. I don't have any picks though. It was well done by the writer Flip Putthoff.
One was on exploring local islands around the lake and the other two were on crappie fishing.

I've had several pictures of my clients and the big crappie they caught while fishing with me published in the local paper and hunting/fishing magazine.

Does that count? ;)

the guy I fish with, Brad Whitehead, was in Crappie world last month. His article is about getting your jigs out at just the rigth depth, on page 28. But the cool thing is the guy he was fishing with made the cover. He is wearing a yellow cap adn shirt with Phlueger on it.with one of Brads rods in his had. The picture was taken in front of one of our favorite holes on Wilson lake. Thought that was pretty cool. If you look in CUSA's crappie journa., Brad's big mug is holding fish in an advertisement for the Colbert County Tourism. Kinda scared me when I opened up to that page and that ugly face was staring at me.

This is from the 2001 Sportsmens Digest newspaper ... about the first Crappie.com Fall Brawl Crappie Tournament, held on Watts Bar Lake, in East TN. Partner Paul and I took 2nd place ... that'd be me on the far right in the picture (tall guy holding the Brag Board).
Paul & I won the following Spring Fling 2002, but I don't remember if pictures & report made it into that paper. I don't have a copy, if it was, so I can't show it. ......... cp :cool:

I've had several pics published in Midsouth Hunting and Fishing News. Also, wrote a weekly fishing column for a local newspaper for a little while. Maybe if I get off my butt and get back to writing I could take over when Tim Huffman retires. Yeah right.

Jerry didn't mention it but it would fit in this thread. He has had several fishing shows filmed from his boat - Midwest Crappie and Bob Robbins Outdoors.

I took my 7 year old grandson bluegill snatching---we caught about 200. When we stopped at bait shop on the way home they took his picture with the fish, sent it to Field and Stream and it was published .

Grandson is now 22 years old 6' 8" and well over 300 lbs. He still talks about that trip. OH, the joys of taking a grandson fishing!!!!!!!

Yes atleast twice, once in Arkansas Sportsman Magazine was mentioned in article on state record catfish. Then once in Fishfinder magazine with an 11 lb Large mouth Bass. I usually won't even let the local bait shop post pictures of my catches !:o Don't want too many following me to my fish'n spots and pictures at the local bait shop causes that !:(

You forgot UGLY MUG magazine Richard. I think you have been a pinup regular for several years now. LOL I used to be the centerfold for FATBOYS magazine, but it went bankrupt. Never could figure out why.

We may all get recognized in various forms, but the memory you made for your grandson is the ultimate. Kudos to you. I can only hope to do the same at least once in my life. You are an honorable man and have my admiration. Thank you for the post.

I, along with 3 other friends, were in "Arkansas Sportsman" one time with a picture of 6 gobblers that we killed while hunting the Muddy Creek Wildlife Management Area.
